    It's blood libel Kelzie! BLOOD LIBEL!



    It's a reference so obscure that even Jews are going 'Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?'

    I'm thinking something like this is the most likely answer. Guy seemed like a nut job. I place more blame on his parents than I normally do for not getting him help.

    Re: Sarah Palin accuses critics of "blood libel"

    But the "blood libel" phrase had already been used in the context of the Tucson tragedy. The conservative commentator Glenn Reynolds first raised it in an opinion article in the Wall Street Journal on Monday, asking, "Where is the decency in blood libel?" Others on the right picked up the phrase as well, leading conservative commentator Jonah Goldberg to wonder if this was appropriate.

    "Historically, the term is almost invariably used to describe anti-Semitic myths about how Jews use blood -- usually from children -- in their rituals. I agree entirely with Glenn's, and now Palin's, larger point. But I'm not sure either of them intended to redefine the phrase, or that they should have," he wrote.

    But Jim Geraghty, another commentator on National Review, has quickly collected many other examples of commentators and politicians using the phrase "blood libel" out of context. His examples include references to Sen. John Kerry's testimony to the Senate as Vietnam War veteran and the recount battle in Florida after the 2000 election.

    Glad I'm not the only one who had to look it up when I read the headlines this morning. Which is what lead to my immediate reaction: "How the hell did she come up with that one?!"

    From what I hear, his mom is really nice. However, neighbors have claimed that they were scared of the dad and that he was kind of a nutjob.

    Prosecutors say the incident helped cement a fixation on Giffords, whom Loughner’s associates say he called a “fake.”

    Do I agree with his assessment of her? Absolutely not. The guy was a raving lunatic. Just look at his youtube videos for evidence of this.
